What are they about?
DigiFinland supports regional projects that promote the preparation of the social welfare and health care reform in renewing and harmonising their operating methods and processes through digital tools (sector three). We are promoting four different entities, in particular: The introductions and further development of the Omaolo.fi service, the New integrations project, the Electronic family centre project, and the Electronic archiving project.
Who are involved in the cooperation?
The projects are carried out in close cooperation with national actors such as the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare (THL), the Social Insurance Institution (Kela), the Ministry of Social Affairs and Health, the Digital and Population Data Services Agency (DVV) and the regions.
What we do
The introductions, increase of use and further development of the Omaolo.fi service. Omaolo is an electronic service and service channel for social welfare, health care and oral health care that supports self-care and directs the patient to appropriate assistance if necessary. DigiFinland supports the regions during the introductions of Omaolo during 2021. During 2021, Omaolo will be introduced in several hospital districts. In addition, some regions will expand their use of Omaolo regionally or in terms of content. DigiFinland supports the regions in the implementation of the introduction projects.
With the help of new integrations, regions will be supported in their goals to develop digital social welfare and health care services, taking the needs of residents and the digital service entity into account. Integrations are used to make it smoother for a resident to independently seek treatment and to reduce the workload of a professional. The following entities are included: Booking integrations, Patient text integrations, and Remote appointment integrations.
The objective of the Electronic family centre project is to develop a national e-portal and a data bank that contains up-to-date information on the services of families, young people and children; self-care materials; shared national electronic services; and guidance to regional services.
The aim of the Electronic archiving project is to increase the utilisation rate of Kela’s old patient data Kanta archive.
Where are we currently?
All projects have been started and they will be completed in 2021.
